country that killed 12 and wound dozens more. so what's it done to us? what has this event stirred in this country? made us different from the people who watch this program, say, just a week ago. i want to know. i want to hear again the many separate human actions that night that tell us what kind of a country we are and where we are headed. i want to hear not just about the villain and the victims, but also the heroes. the impulsive good guys that night. the ones that hemming way described as courage, grace under fire and under pressure. i want to know how aurora is going to affect this country. us. today brought the announce many that denver, colorado, just miles from the tragedy will host the first presidential debate this autumn. this all but guarantees that the two presidential candidates, president obama and mitt romney will be asked about the tragedy. what should they say? let's ask governor ed rendell what barack obama should say. it will be interesting. to start with, let's their personal stories following a tragedy like aurora. look at how heartbreaking they are and tell
that strange to the congress. >> well, then give us some assurance. tell us that behind the scenes at least there's some constructive conversation going on about how to deal with this fiscal cliff before we go over it. >> well, i believe that the budget priorities committee, the committee on budget priorities and policies, they have said to us that this is not really a cliff in the common sense of the word, but more like a slope because i do believe that even after the elections, there is plenty enough time for us to come back here in a lame duck and do what is necessary to extend budgetary considerations for at least a year while we'll have time to really work on things we need to do. and that is to have the massive overhaul of our tax code. i think that we're in the trouble we're in today not so much because of people's priorities but because we have a problem with our tax code that needs to be fixed. i think that's what's important about that vote today. >> but, congressman, that approach of, we'll all get together and work together after the election, someday never seems to come. you we
. if you want to join us on social media, you can send us a tweet. you can also send us an e-mail. a poll about the said of the economy and one of the questions asked was the role washington should play. here is the right appeared this is from "the miami herald." >> again, the headlines, taking a role -- taking a look at what role government should take, whether robocalls and is helping or hurting the economy when it comes to helping it grow. that is what we will ask you this morning. if you want to mention the question, but then, you can give a call in one of three lines/party. is uncle sam helping or hurting the economy? this is from "the baltimore sun." the headline is "the american economy stuck in low gear." again, and uncle sam, helping or hurting the economy? here's the headline one more time. one of the take away from this is that 22% of democrats say that the government -- is that 72% of democrats say that the government should solve the economic problem. again, of sam, helping or hurting the economy? caller: the gop house is hurting the economy. the stimulus did not work. it ran
. [laughter] that is one. i used to congress on your corner. hear you say, i'm going to do this. it is the most intimate form of government. they did not hear your message about the telephone. [laughter] let me say this. we are having -- this is a pet peeve so thank you. this discussion about all that matters is tax rate is ridiculous. i cut upper head tax rates by 50% and by the time my term is out, we will eliminate it. tax breaks matter. -- tax rates matter. but any business person will also tell you the quality of a workforce matters. can they get goods and services efficiently? is government transparent? this year, we had 147 business places on the books. we had more than l.a., phoenix, and philadelphia combined. we massively consolidated them down to 43. i do not like you focusing on city hall. i want you focusing on your customer. my favorite example of this consolidation was if you buy a dog, they need a license. if he so the caller, you need another license. if you want to offer the service of watching the dog, you need another license. i was just looking for a kid to b
of the stand your graund law. you can't run after somebody and stand your ground and use deadly force. it is also an issue before the jury trial, a judge can decide this issue in florida. it is huge. obviously he talked to his lawyer and he has to be careful about what he says about whether he followed trayvon martin. it is the pivotal issue pretrial and if he gets to trial. >> his attorney says they may not use stand your ground. they may just use a basic self-defense. here is another chunk with sean hannity and he has before you hear this chunk he has described in great detail about the fight and the wrestle for the gun. >> uh-huh. >> do you remember when you yourself reached for your weapon? do you remember that moment? >> yes, sir. >> how was that? >> at that point i realized that it wasn't my gun, it wasn't his gun, it was the gun. >> i feel like there was some point that he was trying to make, i wasn't sure that i fully understood it. what message was that supposed to be about not my gun but the gun? >> well, exactly. keep in mind in the first court appearance he said he didn't
the bombing, fueling all kinds of rumors. when i last interviewed him in 2005, i asked him about the u.s. overtly seeking a new syrian leader, even then. >> i feel very confident for one reason. because i was made in syria. i wasn't made in the united states. i'm not worried. >> reporter: but he must be worried now. i spoke with a senior israeli official here in jerusalem about what might happen to assad himself. >> unfortunately, we are going to witness quite a long process of bloodshed. otherwise, he might be assassinated and it could -- it can happen within a day. >> and christiane amanpour joins us now. christiane, how does it look to you? is this a signal the end is near? >> reporter: well, look, i think everybody is hoping that will be the case. and honestly, you cannot have the decapitation of the regime's entire defense, intelligence and security apparatus without it having a severe impact on the regime. on the other hand, some people say he might double down and really fight to the very end. >> but what impact does this have on iran? does this mean iran is also weakened, isolate

involved in the conversation, here are the numbers -- you can get in touch with us via social media -- we want to begin by showing an article that we got from "the hill" here to talk to us more about that on the telephone is carlo muniz, a reporter on "the hill." guest: thanks for having me. host: about this proposed work group the senator ayotte is shopping around the capital. does this sound like another super committee to fix what the other super committee could not fix? guest: in a certain sense, you are right. from my understanding, the working group the senator ayotte was gauging support for would really be focused on the one-year proposals that republicans in the house and the senate or looking at. senator ayotte along with senator mccain and senator kyl and senator rubio and others are looking at a one-year postponement of sequestration which is scheduled to go into effect early in january. rep buck mckean is looking at a similar program. i think the working group she was looking at, i don't think these working groups would tackle the entire sequestration issue the way the sup
